How do artificial non-ionizing electromagnetic fields interfere with biological tissue functions and structures? Many mechanisms have been proposed. They are not exclusive of each other. They are not equally well studied or supported. The effects on any given individual may depend upon the species, gender, health, age or tissue(s) involved. This map lists many of the mechanisms proposed, with several links to demonstrate each one.

Tinnitus is the perception of sound (ringing, hissing, buzzing) in one or both ears, not produced by an external source. It is a common complaint, affecting approximately one in six Americans. It ranges in severity from a mild background noise to a constant disabling disruption of daily function. Some cases begin following known stresses such as loud noises or medications, but many times the causes are unknown.
Many people sensitive to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields describe various ear sensations -- heat, throbbing, pain -- as well as tinnitus. Some studies have been performed and several mechanisms suggested. This map offers a linked overview of reports, mechanisms, studies and articles.

One of the serious complications of diabetes mellitus is renal failure. The earliest sign of kidney pathology is microalbuminuria, the appearance of greater than normal excretion of protein in the urine. This map offers links to studies and articles which make dietary recommendations to slow the progression of renal disease. Consult your health provider before undertaking any new therapy.
Engineered nanoparticles are so small that they are essentially surfaces. They behave differently in the body than other naturally occurring small particles, complicating research. Nevertheless, serious health consequences have been noted.
